New Zealand challenger Michael Fay, defeated in his bid to win the America's Cup on the water earlier this month, has written a letter to a New York court asking that a conference be scheduled for parties involved in his pending legal attempt to disqualify the successful U.S. defender.

Fay has said he will seek a forfeit of the America's Cup from the San Diego Yacht Club because of its decision to send a dual-hulled catamaran against his 133-foot monohulled sloop.
